Tolkien and Dol Guldur

Siege of Mirkwood is about to release in LOTRO (www.lotro.com). I was just reading about Dol Guldur and discovered that Sauron sent three Nazgul to occupy the tower at one point. The meaning of of Dol Guldur in Sindarin: hill of sorcery (116, Foster).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It's been a hard year for the auto industry hear in Michigan, but we can be thankful for what we have. I'd like to go to Mass tomorrow. The etymology of Eucharist has it's roots in the Greek noun and verb for being thankful. This Greek word was used in the New Testament texts referring to the Mass (or Lord's Supper).
